Update (5/23):

According to The Telegraph, the final round of  Olympic tickets went on sale Wednesday morning. Many of the marquee disciplines are already sold out, but organizers told The Telegraph  that there remains "good availability" for sports such as archery, badminton, basketball, beach volleyball, diving, handball and hockey.

So if you want to hit London this summer, you best act fast. Otherwise, you may have to brave the extortionist waters of online brokerage.

 

-----End of Update--------

 

On Friday, London Olympic organizers will release an additional one million event tickets to the sport-hungry masses (via the AP).

But before you take an impetuous stab at scoring some seats, you should know that this is going to cost you.

Oh man, is it going to cost you.

Putting on my hopelessly outdated travel agent hat—it's a Scottish tam—I've crunched the numbers on this summer's most expensive vacation.

Faster, higher, stronger—costlier.
